FRILL GERTRUDE BECKWITH
Artist and Teacher of Art
Frill Gertrude Beckwith was born in Bay City, Michigan, where she lived until she
prepared for college in Ann Arbor. In college she "did not brag of taking Art for
fear of being accused of looking for snaps." She took all courses offered in Art,
however, having studied it privately since childhood. At the end of her second col-
lege year she was offered an opportunity to go to an Art School in the East, provided
she proved that she could teach. She was very successful in teaching both Art and
Manual Training, but was influenced to choose the latter through her study with Miss
Osterholm, "a graduate of Finland's finest school, Sweden's finest school, and Colum-
bia as well."
Miss Beckwith says, "Out of a clear sky I decided on Boston. Some one told me
of Agassiz's daughter (Mrs. Shaw) and all she was doing. I do not know what good
fairy guided me. Not alone the school but the influence of Mrs. Shaw was something
that cannot be expressed in mere words."
While studying in Boston, Miss Beckwith taught in a number of Settlement Houses,
and at Chestnut Hill Private School.
Then back to Michigan, to supervise Manual Training (cooking, sewing, wood-
work, and craft work) in Lansing, with the special problem of keeping over-age boys
in school. So skillfully did she solve this problem that she was called to Yakima,
Washington, to do the same thing. After another year of study, Miss Beckwith re-
ceived calls from Los Angeles and from Bridgewater.
This account is finished in Miss Beckwith 's own words.
"I accepted Bridgewater, where I spent twenty-one delightful years. Any one who
knows anything of Dr. Boyden knows that means getting the best and giving the best.
"While at Bridgewater I had a wonderful experience — 'My trip abroad.' I went to
the International Art Congress at Prague with Dr. Henry Turner Bailey. I consider that
I have been very fortunate. First Dr. Angell of Michigan University; second, Dr.
Boyden,- and third, Dr. Bailey — all masters of the Art of Living.
"I am sorry I had so short a time with Dr. Scott. During the time I was with him I
felt his enthusiasm, and his appreciation of what I tried to do. I felt his courage, under-
standing, and sympathy.
"I start in once more studying Art in Detroit next week. Wish me luck. I think I
have found another wonderful teacher."
HARLAN PAGE SHAW
SCIENTIST AND TEACHER OF SCIENCE
Harlan Page Shaw was born July 31, 1866, in Waterville, Nova Scotia. He re-
ceived his early education in the schools of Berwick, Nova Scotia, and in Horton Col-
legiate Academy, Wolfville, Nova Scotia.
For two years he was manager of his father's orchard and farm, and then spent one
year at machinist's tools and woodworking in Worcester, Mass. Mr. Shaw returned to
Nova Scotia, and studied one year to pass the provincial examinations for a teacher's
license. For a short time he was principal and teacher of a primary school, and enjoyed
In September, 1 886, Mr. Shaw entered Bridgewater Normal School, and was gradu-
ated from the four years' course with high rank. During the last three years as a student
at this school, he also taught woodworking to all of the Normal students. Despite all
these activities, Mr. Shaw found time for school athletics, excelling in the pole vault,
tennis, and football.
Mr. Shaw became a regular member of the Normal School faculty in September
1 890, and has continued to the present time. While carrying a full-time teaching pro-
gram at Bridgewater, Mr. Shaw has also covered much outside study in connection with
the Lowell School of Science, M. I. T., Hyannis Summer School and Harvard. These
courses have been in physiography, geology and chemistry. He has taken many field
studies in geology in company with N. S. Shaler and J. B. Woodworth of Harvard, and
W. O. Crosby and George H. Barton of Technology. Four summers Mr. Shaw taught
mineralogy and chemistry at Hyannis Summer School. For a short time preceding the
appointment of Dr. Zenos Scott, he was acting president of Bridgewater State Teachers
Mr. Shaw has published "A Course in Woodworking," "The Study of Minerals,"
"Laboratory Course in Elementary Chemistry," "Outlines of Historical Geology," and
"A Course in General Science."
Mr. Shaw's varied interests have led him to association with many scientific educa-
tional societies. For twelve years he was a member of the Bridgewater School Com-
mittee, and the Town Planning Board. He has always been active in civic affairs.
For forty-six years, Mr. Shaw has not lost even a single half-day of teaching
because of illness.
Evidently teaching runs in Mr. Shaw's family. Teachers in his immediate family in-
clude his father, two of his brothers, one sister, and five of his sons and daughters. One
of his brothers, Dr. Avery A. Shaw, is now president of Denison University, Granville,

CLASS ODE — 1936
Four short years have we trod in thy footsteps,
Years spent with hard work, friends, and fun,-
But forever we'll practice thy precepts,
Our guide in the years to come.
We are-sad to be leaving thy portals,
We realize all you have done,
Ever we'll tread in the light of thy beacon
That brings guidance to each one,-
As we go from the source of our learning,
We pause, paying tribute to thee,
Alma Mater dear, we will ever cheer,
And bring fame to B. T. C.
Now as we're leaving this, our College,
Enriched with pow'r gained from thee,
Ever we'll strive to use all of our knowledge
To praise our B. T. C.

INTERPRETATION OF THE ART WORK IN ALPHA
The layout and illustrations of this year's Alpha have been designed in keeping
with today's trend. The central themes of the illustrations are handcrafts and science,
these subjects being chosen because the book is dedicated to Miss Beckwith and
The following outline gives the central theme in each of the illustrated pages:
END SHEETS: Science and handcrafts symbolized in objects carried by student.
CLASSES: Science symbolized in experimentation with nature.
STUDENT CO-OPERATIVE ASSOCIATION: Science and the handcrafts
symbolized in student activities leading to central figure, the head of the Student
CLUBS: Handcrafts symbolized in central figure of a puppet, holding strings to
various clubs of the college.
ATHLETICS: Science symbolized in force and strain of athletes.
Ralph Nelson, John Julin, Dorothy Perkins, Kathleen Kelly, Joseph Chicetti.
The Editorial Board of Alpha for 1936 wish to extend our sincere appreciation
to Miss Davis, Miss Nye, Miss Pope, and Mr. Kelly, our faculty advisers, in acknowl-
edgement of their valuable assistance in the publishing of this book. We also thank
all members of the college who have aided in making the task of publishing the Alpha
a most enjoyable and profitable experience.

When we, as Freshmen, entered Boyden Hall,
And looked around with eager, searching eye,
The first to meet our glance
Was that set high above the door's wide arch,
A creed: — Bridgewater's Creed,
Which we shall love and cherish evermore,
"Not to be ministered unto, but to minister."
That motto old which did our entrance hail
Is more than words of bronze upon the wall;
It forms the doctrine clear
By which we spend our pleasant college days,
And doubtless it will guide our future years,-
A creed: — Bridgewater's Creed,
"Not to be ministered unto, but to minister."

September, 1932 — Orchid- ribbons and shopping bags, red caps and green ties —
thus we arrived, full of pep, but afraid to show it! Worried Freshmen.
September, 1933 — Growing up! Combined Sophomore-Junior prom for the first
time. Progressive Sophomores.
September, 1934 — Training — committees — prom — winter meet — Campus Carnivals.
September, and on, 1935 — Philosophizing Education, 84 lit students pursuing Shake-
speare, "Van Doling," promming. Sedate Seniors.
This in brief, accounts for our activities during the four short years we've been
here. Logically critical, desiring new things, thus we have progressed.
The combined Sophomore-Junior prom, in Davy Jones' locker, our second year,
we shall never forget.
Learning through experience, we made the Senior dance completely outshine all
of our others, both socially and financially.
Starting a new custom, we presented a senior chapel program which depicted
subjects which are typically Senior.
As usual, Christmas cards were for sale. The tendency this year was toward
the idea of Bridgewater, the college, and the campus.
The spring chapel program presented a pre-view of Class Day for the benefit
of the entire school.
Tableaux at Class Day as usual, but dealing with the unusual — "How Govern-
ments, Ancient and Modern, Affect Education."
The finale — June 8, prom; June 1 2, Ivy March.

Junior days seem to be the acme of all that college years can mean — days per-
meated with a delight for living, holding none of the bewildered feeling of the Fresh-
man, the unsettled state of the Sophomore, or the sorrow of the Senior. We cease
to be observers and boldly sail forth on a life of activity as upper classmen — feeling
ourselves fully established as a part of the college.
The new plan of Senior training affected us, giving us a term longer to be together
as Juniors to apply the lessons learned in Training School in preparation for better
teaching as Seniors. Meanwhile the Juniors have not failed to inscribe their names
on athletic records and contribute their share to the social season. Our boys have
supported all our varsity teams, while W. A. A. honor teams have the names of
several Junior girls. The Ice Carnival, ushered in on a snappy December night, was
the same big success as '37's previous socials. The gala event of the season, however,
was the colorful Sophomore-Junior prom.
Then, too, Junior musical talent has helped to make many school affairs through-
out the season successful events. As the year draws to a close, we look backward on
a year of accomplishments and forward to a year of greater achievement and fellow-
ship at B. T. C. before we go forth "to minister."

Significance of the Ivy March
The trumpet calls represent the call to duty, especially for the Seniors.
The oak boughs held by the under-classmen symbolize to the Seniors the ever-
lasting protection of the College.
The ivy, which is planted and also carried by each graduate, symbolizes the spirit
of comradeship and good fellowship.
The daisy chain carried by the Junior women represents a guard of honor for the
Finally, the "Alma Mater" sung by the Seniors at the conclusion of the March
signifies a continual renewal of their loyalty to Bridgewater.

After a summer of recuperation from our strenuous and exciting Freshman year,
we gladly returned once again to B. T. C. ready to begin our second year with a
slight suggestion of dignity. Dignity, however, doesn't accompany Freshman ini-
tiations. We joyfully took our turn acclimating the Freshmen to college life, as do
When the Freshmen were acquainted with their surroundings we then turned
toward our social activities. The Sophomore-social was held in January, immed-
iately following the Christmas vacation.
The Sophomores boast some excellent athletes, both male and female. In every
sport the Sophomore class was represented on the varsity team.
We were the first Sophomores not to carry out the tradition of gaining our first
teaching experience in the Training School during our Sophomore year. We look
forward hopefully, but sceptically, to our training next year.
As June rolls around we have completed another very happy year at B. T. C.
and we are looking forward to our return as the so-called "complacent" juniors.

If any of us entertained any ideas of being important, they were quickly evapo-
rated when we were taken in hand by the upper-classmen at the opening of the college
year. The initiation was a success from all points of view,- both the initiators and the
initiated proved themselves good sports.
The Acquaintance Social afforded us an opportunity to become acquainted
with our fellow students.
A Freshman Tea was held during Book Week in the library. The girls were well
represented and even a few of the men were prevailed upon to attend.
The Freshman Party held in the Albert Gardner Boyden gymnasium uncovered
a wealth of talent in the class.
At the Freshman Social in May, further opportunity was provided to meet class-
mates and enjoy an evening of dancing.
The sports world found the class contributing their share of material to the teams.
We have begun our college careers well. May we continue to grow, and by
our actions demonstrate to the world that Bridgewater Teachers College is one of the
best of its kind!
William R. McGhee, Secretary.

SO YOUNG, SO FAIR"
CLIFFORD B. JOHNSON
A country lane — it rolled between
Two avenues of drooping trees
And on them with a lustrous sheen
The moon looked down. The breeze
Was gently swaying. The shadows
Flickered o'er the smooth stream below
Where calm waters, satin smooth, closed
Their ripples over banks. The low
Sweet sound of song was barely heard
For the aching in the voice robbed
All else of meaning. A hand stirred,
A head shook back; the throat sobbed
For an answer to it all. A night
So calm. To think that brain
Could question — why the stream was still,
The breeze was mild, and, too, the lane
Slid smoothly on. There was no hill
To pause and wonder of beyond.
The moon still shone serene. But then —
There have been stormy nights, no fond
Breeze but reckless wind, and when
It broke, the stream unleashed its strength.
And even country lanes meet hills
With no moon shining o'er whole length
Of them. No wonder, then, this fills
A heart, a soul, a perplexed head —
This quiet night. An aching heart
Reached out. A groping hand stopped dead.
There was no answer for my part.
A heart might break — a soul might ache
But it couldn't move the cold serenity
Of that night. The moon would shine
Superciliously on — The country lane
Would wind its way among the trees unmoved.
The stream would never change its course.

The Student Co-operative Association is the largest and most important organi-
zation in the school. Upon entering the college, every student automatically be-
comes a member of this association.
The purpose of the organization is to regulate all matters pertaining to student
life which do not fall under the jurisdiction of the faculty, to foster a spirit of unity and
co-operation in all ways possible among the students of the college, and to maintain
the high standards of Bridgewater Teachers College. This objective is attained
through the efficient work of the various councils.
Foremost among these is the Student Council, with its truly representative member-
ship, consisting of men and women, day and dormitory students, class and division
representatives, and heads of the outstanding activities.
The Student Council directs affairs pertaining to the entire student group. The
aim of the Student Council is to act as a medium between faculty and students in rais-
ing the standards of scholarship, conduct, and activities. This group tries to improve
the life of the college and initiate the best movements of student collegiate life into
Meetings are held the fourth Friday of the month with compulsory attendance in
order to insure efficiency in the work of the council.
This year the council has created a new committee, the Civic Committee, whose
duty it is to improve the conditions about the college.

Dormitory Council has been successful in carrying on the duties of former years
and has inaugurated several new ideas.
Approximately five hundred guests were entertained at "Open House," when
parents and friends met the faculty of the college. Many of our graduates were wel-
comed back Alumni weekend.
One of the outstanding accomplishments of our council has been the innovation
of Informal Study-Hour. This new policy is working out successfully through the co-
operation of all the girls. The usual "ten-fifteen permissions" may now be taken on
Another new idea was that of giving Contract Bridge lessons to many enthusiastic
We have enjoyed representing the girls in the dormitories on the council and
hope that our changes will make dormitory life happier.

Redecorating and modernizing have occupied the attention of Gertrude French
and the house board in their effort to create a friendly spirit and cheery atmosphere
in Woodward Hall.
The appearance of the radio room was improved by new pictures and carefully
selected furnishings such as a couch cover, pillows, and lampshades. A piano, which
was a gift from Mrs. Arthur C. Boyden, has been greatly appreciated and enjoyed
by the girls. With the addition of new chair coverings and curtains, the lobby has
become a pleasing introduction to the attractive student rooms. There we find much
originality displayed. Sports enthusiasts welcomed the innovation of new and
varied games downstairs in the game room.
House meetings have been enlivened by planned entertainments given by each
class. We have uncovered much hidden talent in our performers.
Our social activity included the annual Woodward Dance in the fall, and a tea
in the early spring.
To our successors — as enjoyable and happy a year as we have had!

In September, the old residents of Tillinghast came back to a full house and
welcomed the freshmen and newcomers from Woodward and from other colleges. The
spirit of friendliness; always characteristic of Tillinghast, was intensified by the "peanut
sister" idea. If the girls received gifts or surprises during the year, it was the doings
of their peanut sisters, and what fun it was trying to discover who they were.
We all enjoyed the Hallowe'en party at which the Freshmen were initiated with
all the solemnity and ceremony due the ghost of Nicholas Tillinghast, but they showed
us what they could accomplish and proved to be true Tillinghastites at the annual
There have been changes, too, in Tillinghast, always for the better. The over-
head lights in the students' rooms were renovated during the summer,- besides this,
floor plugs and lights in the closets were installed. To our reception room have been
added a grandfather's clock and new rugs and table runners to make the room more
attractive for our Saturday afternoon teas.
As we look back upon a successful and enjoyable year, we hope that those to
come will be just as happy and prosperous.

This year the Day Student Association has proved of what mettle they are made.
From the beginning, activity has been our watchword. The room we hoped and
planned for last year became a reality. Under faculty guidance our artistic mem-
bers arranged a very pleasant room which we are enjoying to the utmost.
Very fittingly, the first of our social events was a tea, which formally opened the
recreation room to the students of the college.
Not satisfied with a room, we immediately started to make the room even more
enjoyable for its occupants — a radio was our objective. Our first financial attempt
was a style show, which was enthusiastically attended by students and faculty alike.
With the returns we were able to purchase a radio.
As has been customary, we sponsored a social, and as usual, it was a success.
If the active program of this year's organization is continued by succeeding groups,
the day students will continue to be a most vital part of Bridgewater life.

SOCIAL ACTIVITIES COMMITTEE
The Social Activities Committee is truly representative of the entire college.
Its membership includes people from every class and from various organizations.
This committee is responsible for planning a great deal of the social life of the college.
The first social event of the year was the Acquaintance Social. Dancing and
games were enjoyed, and the Freshmen were given an excellent opportunity to meet
the faculty and the upperclassmen.
Everyone looks to the Social Activities Committee to start the regular Friday
night socials; so we gave our social the second week of school and used as our theme
the Freshman initiation and the traditional sack-rush.
In November we attempted a more dignified affair, the S. C. A. formal.
This year we have tried to enlarge the usual program of the committee. Under
Miss Pope's guidance we have endeavored to acquire the art of giving a successful
tea. Everyone has been given an opportunity to help in all phases of the work.
We began our training by having a small informal tea for the committee and a few
guests. Later we assisted at the Alumni tea. Open House tea, the tea given during
the W. A. A. convention, and the Freshmen teas.
We all feel that this experience has proven valuable to us, and we hope that the
committee of next year will be able to continue this work which we have begun.

LECTURE FUND COMMITTEE
Rita Cushing, Chairman
With the realization that there are always those who cannot be pleased, Culture
Fund endeavors to choose outstanding speakers for the college, who will bring satis-
faction to the majority.
The selection of the speaker rests with the committee, consisting of three mem-
bers of the faculty and representatives of the student body. An effort is made to
cover as many different fields of subject matter as possible with the hope of adding
some new interest to that which already has been presented.
Mr. John Martin, dance critic for the New York Times, introduced to the college
the modern dance in his lecture, "The Ancient Art of Modern Dancing." Because
of the newness of the subject, Mr. Martin's extensive background, and the very
pleasing personality which he presented as a speaker, this program was enjoyed
by all and considered very successful.
The second lecturer, Dr. John Haynes Holmes, minister of the Community Church
in New York, spoke on "Is our Present Civilization Worth Saving?" Dr. Holmes'
ideas were a challenge to all and were a contributing factor to the knowledge gained
from such addresses.
Geography was the next field covered in an illustrated lecture by Dr. Clarence
F. Jones of Clark University. Dr. Jones' lecture, "The Highland Indians of Peru and
Bolivia," was most interesting owing to the fact that the speaker lived and studied
in South America among the people about whom he lectured.
We hope that future speakers will meet with as much approval as did those chosen

'You say there's a God.
Well, I don't believe it!
I know that it shocks you,
But that's how I 'reel'!
'All to their notions"
I said, and I left him,-
To my way of thinking,
The man wasn't real.
Two neat swallows,
Seeking out a nest.
There they go a-flying,
Fast as rifle bullets;
Now they light upon a branch
Each to take a rest.
Suddenly the female starts
And is on the wing again.
Male goes quickly after her,
Dressed in "swallow's best."
Then one day their nest I find
Hungry mouths are opened wide
Mrs. Swallow chirps to say,
'Nature did the rest!"

through discussion of dramatics.
Each year the club presents three plays: a modern play in the Fall, a Christmas
play, and a Shakespearian play. The club attends one or two professional plays in

Beginning with its first meeting and continuing throughout the year, Library Club
has carried on a series of activities and delightful programs which were the outgrowth
of an enthusiastic interest in contemporary publications and their authors. During
the past year, a new plan was conceived by which the members of the club were
grouped under a phase of literature they were most eager to learn more of — biog-
raphy, travel, fiction, or poetry. Each group read the latest books included in their
particular division, discussed them, and presented their criticisms to the other members.
Presenting an opportunity to learn more of the literary world to the chosen few
members is not the only aim of Library Club — it also supplies opportunities for culture
to the entire student body. The lending library, which has become so popular, has
added many of the year's most discussed books, among them being "And Gladly
Teach," by Bliss Perry, "The Sun Also Rises," by Ernest Hemingway, and "Mary,
Queen of Scots," by Stefan Zweig.
In November, Miss Ruth Campbell, a recent graduate of Emerson College,
gave a charming, animated presentation of a portion of Bess Streeter Aldrich's "Miss
Bishop" for our chapel program.
Outstanding on the club's social calendar were the dates of the trip into Boston
to see one of the year's best plays and of the social held in the spring.

TOPICS OF THE DAY
President Belle Barsky

Secretary Ruth Turner
Treasurer Prakseda Gricius
This year Topics-of-the-Day Club has been very successful under the leadership
of its president, Belle Barsky. The membership has increased to a total of fifty-eight,
a new peak in the membership for the club.
The aim of the club is "the mutual improvement of its members through a study
of the vital topics of the day." Through our discussions of such topics as "Italy in
Ethiopia," "The AAA," "The Youth Movement in Europe," and "The Progress of
Japan" we not only have an opportunity for relaxation and social contacts, but also
for the gaining of a basic understanding of the problems confronting the world.
The club is governed and the programs are arranged by the executive board,
which is made up of the club officers and a representative from each class. Besides
planning interesting programs for group discussion the board also makes arrange-
ments for a few outside speakers each year.
We hope through the help of our faculty adviser, and this series of varied pro-
grams, to accomplish our aim and also to instill in the members a love for current
history. Ruth Turner, Secretary

Voici encore I'annee du Mardi Gras — cette fois-ci a Paris. Le nom du carnaval
— "Voici Paris." A Paris, naturellement, on voit les types parisiens — les artistes,
les Apaches, les uniques. A notre Paris dont la mise-en scene est le gymnase de
Bridgewater on vit aussi des types parisiens — mais peut-etre vaut-il mieux les appeler
tout simplement les "je ne sais quoi." Aussi il y avait toutes les belles reines, dont
it y eut une, la favorite, la reine des reines, qui regno ce soir-la avec son camarade,
le roi du carnaval.

francais aux "dormitories," — le premier pas en route pour I'etablissement d'une
Maison Francaise! Qui sait?

ont aussi assiste a ceux du Theatre Fine Arts.

MARDI GRAS— VOICI PARIS
February 14, 1936
When Le Cercle Francais began making its plans for the Mardi Gras, which
took place on February 14, 1936, it decided to go modern and show its guests a bit
of Parisian night life. Accordingly, ambitious members set about designing scenery,
shops, and cafes to change the Albert Gardner Boyden Gymnasium into a fitting
place for the Mardi Gras revellers.
Katherine Kelly was chairman of the decoration committee, and planned a drop
for the east end of the gymnasium, which showed a beautiful view of L'Arc de Tri-
Mary Gauszis transfoimed the alcove under the balcony at the back of the gym-
nasium into Jenane's style shop, whose silver-curtained windows showed dresses and
accessories for both evening and sports wear.
Above Jenane's was a gay Alsatian cafe, flying the American flag. This was
planned by Jeannette Paul. Tables for four were covered with blue, white and red
covers, and, because it was February 14, tiny trees on which grew many, many red
hearts were used for center-pieces.
The orchestra played in the corner near the style shop, while near-by was a flower
shop with a large variety of flowers.
The patrons and patronesses for the affair were Dr. and Mrs. Zenos E. Scott,
Miss S. Elizabeth Pope, Mr. John Kelly, Miss Priscilla Nye, and Mr. and Mrs. Balfour
Tyndall. They were greeted by the guests in a salutation march.
The floats this year were unusually good, the banner for the most representative
going to Campus Comment for the float "An Editor's Nightmare."
Esther Thorley and Stephen Lovett were elected by the students as Queen and
King of the Mardi Gras.
Prizes for the best costumes were awarded to Barbara Albret, who represented
Mamie of the comic strip, most grotesque,- Rachel Lane, a Dutch girl all in blue, most
beautiful; and Marie von Bergen, in star-spangled black with a silver crescent in her
hair, most Parisian.
A feature of the evening was a style show from Jenane's, of which Miss Gauszis
was the proprietor. French costumes representing dress from the fifteenth century to
the present were modelled.
The dance ended a few minutes before midnight with the arrival of Pere Careme,
who bade everyone leave for home. Last of all, Le Cercle sang its good-night song,
"Bon Soir, Confreres."

desires matured into reality, so that this year the school has its baby club, "Der
Through the generous help of Miss Edith Bradford, the faculty adviser, and the
capable leadership of its president, Isabel Jenkins, "Der Deutsche Verein" has rapidly
become a well-organized club, and a worthy member of the group taking part in
extra-curricular activities of the school.
The club was fortunate, on December 4, in having Herr Carstensen and Hubert
Hundt, a German exchange teacher and student from Tabor Academy. They
spoke at a special meeting to which the school was invited.
On December 12, a successful Christmas party was enjoyed by the members.
The meetings for the remainder of the year were concerned with such topics as travel,
drama, music, games, holidays, and current events, all directly related to Germany.
The Freshmen put a finishing touch to the year's program by presenting a German play
in May. Katherine Johnson, Secretary

Science Club is an organization from which many varied benefits may be derived.
Admission to it is based on scholarship and a genuine interest in science.
The club affords an opportunity to further the students' interest in science and to
carry scientific inquiry into fields beyond those touched upon in the class room.
Club activities are diversified. At some of the meetings there are talks given
by club members or by guest speakers who are well versed in their particular branch
of science. To help realize the varied science interests of the different members, the
club is sub-divided into interest groups. Each group has its own specific subject and
devotes its attention to acquiring additional knowledge in this field.
Round-table discussions on current science topics proved to be of unfailing
value in furthering the scientific outlook of the club. As field trips are always a part
of real scientific study, trips to the Agassiz Museum, the Arnold Arboretum, the
Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole, and the Audubon Bird Sanctuary at Sharon
have at times proved to be instructive as well as enjoyable. The club is welded to-
gether socially by such events as its initiation, installations, and picnics, and these,
together with the educational phases of club meetings, give a well-rounded program
of activities for Science Club. Marjorie Butterfield, Secretary

Without our glass enclosure, the
ground is bare and hard.
Harsh winds have torn the summer
clothing from the trees
Leaving them but bare frame-works
of what has been.
But inside the greenhouse
is faerie warmth and summer.
Tall, fan-shaped plants vie with
Stretching like small children to
reach the desired.
Graceful ferns bow lacy fronds
on every side
Filling the benches like tropical
Pots of tiny cuttings are
Arranged in rows along the
Jerusalem cherries, bowed under
Form a colorful orchard on
the central island.
Scrambling vines race each other
over the sides,
And jump to reach the ground below.
Bright spots of sunshine splatter
Showing a lovely pattern of
Let us go into the garden.
The moon sails high
Like paper, glued to the sky
With not even a cloud to hang to.
Shut the garden gate with care,
And tip-toe down the gravel path,
Not to disturb the immense stillness.
Flowers nod as we pass,
Dressed in pastel colors
With a tint of moonlight blue
Like sylvan fairies dancing.
See the tree in the center,
The sentinel of the garden,
Spreading leafy branches to include
The whole garden under protecting wings.
Everything is duplicated by the shadows,
Huge, black, lifeless forms,
The world without the hidden flame of life.
We pass out through the same gate
Leaving the garden silent.
CHANGE OF SCENE
Wild wind wailing in the wood
Soft snow slipping down the field
Where yesterday we watched
A red riot raid a maple
And gold grain gorge upon the sun.

Although a comparatively recent innovation in extra-curricular activities, Hobby
Club is making rapid strides towards becoming one of the most popular clubs in the
college. The members have one earnest purpose in mind — to further their own hobbies
and to acquire other worthwhile ones. Some of the most representative of the hobbies
are: stamps, coins, relics, knitting, animals. More singular ones include: bottles,
block-printing, and favors.
More than ever during the recent period of financial stress, people, regardless of
position in life, have been turning to hobbies as a diversion from the grim facts facing
This group of young men and women realize the value that hobbies are to
have in the future and are taking advantage of a remarkable opportunity to avail

much to inspire and motivate the work of the members of the Hobby Club.

Under the enthusiastic guidance of our faculty adviser, Mr. Reynolds, Camera
Club has enjoyed a most successful and profitable year.
This year the club admitted twelve new members, increasing the total mem-
bership to twenty-four.
The new-comers, under the leadership of the more experienced members, learned

The social life of the club has also played an important part this year. We have
enjoyed several evenings,- one an initiation party at the home of Mr. Reynolds, also
a Christmas and a Valentine party.
We hope that as a result of our work this year all members have developed an
interest in, and an understanding of, photography.

The activities of the Men's Club during the year 1935-36 started off with the
annual banquet, in October. Dr. Scott, Dean Kelly, members of the faculty, super-
intendents from surrounding towns, and several alumni, were our guest speakers.
The youthful Freshman band entertained and the more senile Junior quartet rendered
several old favorites.
The Men's Club social was held on January ten, in the Albert Gardner Boyden
For our play this year we chose the farce, "Here Comes Charlie," in which only
men took part. Miss Moffitt should be given credit for the way in which the play
Men's Amateur Night was sponsored in the Horace Mann Auditorium on
March twenty-seven. The program included individual numbers from the men of the
Some of the speakers who have addressed us this year are Dr. Scott, president
of the college, Hon. James Warren, superintendent of the State Farm at Bridgewater,
and Mr. Stearnes Cushing, superintendent of schools of Middleboro.
Having some of the meetings held at noontime this year perhaps accounts for
the large turnout at the meetings. Then again, the Club has been backed by the men
more this year than ever before.

A new feature to arouse interest in the Men's Club Room in Tillinghast Hall was
the introduction of ping-pong tables. Ping-pong-ers were to be seen at all hours
paddling the little ball back and forth over the net. The enthusiasm aroused for the
sport this year will no doubt carry over into the years to come.
It is up to every man in the college to participate in the Men's Club activities
in order to make the organization a success from year to year. Why not put the
Men's Club on the map?

Kindergarten-Primary Club's first meeting was a party welcoming new members.
There was much to tell them about the coming programs.
We have had some very outstanding speakers including Miss Julia Jacoby of
Wheaton and Miss Florence Rice. They told us of their work in the kindergarten
and nursery school field.
In February we had a Valentine Social, and enjoyed hearing Miss Elizabeth
Spargo, a teacher in the Brookline Primary School and also an instructor in the Boston
Dr. Eugene Philbrook gave us a very interesting nature lecture using pictures he
had taken himself. We thought that the Garden Club would enjoy him too, so its
members were our guests. Tea was served before the meeting.
In May we had our annual banquet when Miss Lucy Wheelock was our guest
speaker. On the following morning Miss Wheelock spoke to the entire student
body during Chapel period.
To Miss Marks we owe much appreciation for making possible so fine a year's
program. Most of our speakers were personal friends of our adviser.

An active year (or the Glee Club was begun as soon as the try-outs were held
last fall to fill the vacancies caused by graduation. Thirty new members were in-
vited to join. A successful year was prophesied at the first meeting.
A new feature was introduced into Glee Club this year — that of singing to the
several retired faculty members of the College. The annual custom of caroling at
our President's home after the faculty reception was continued.
After Christmas the work for our public appearance steadily progressed. The
club had its first appearance before the school on January twenty-eight. The
annual spring concert, assisted by a well-known guest artist, was greatly enjoyed
both by the appreciative audience and by Glee Club members.
After the spring concert, rehearsals for Baccalaureate and Commencement
music began to make us realize that graduation was not far off.
The success of our year's program has depended a great deal on our director,
Miss Rand. "Put all you have in a thing and it will be a success."

From a small group with but a few members, the orchestra has steadily grown
to rank among the leading organizations of the college. This year many Day
Students have been added to the enrollment. This has given the orchestra a wider
scope from which to choose its members. As a result it has been greatly improved
and has shown much better instrumentation.
The work of the year has been more varied than in former years. An interesting
feature was the sectional or group work which included a string ensemble and a trio.
As well as providing music for several of the dramatic productions of the college,
the members of the orchestra contributed toward making the Wednesday morning
chapel programs more enjoyable. Musical selections were given by the group as a
whole and by individuals.
The annual Spring Concert was presented in March. The concert principle was
Beethoven's Symphony No. 1 .
During the year a new set of tympani was purchased by the orchestra.
The work and success of the orchestra was due to the fine and capable leadership
of our conductor, Miss Rand.

Sleep and dream of purple colors,
Pansy-dark and freshly-cool.
Orchids framed by ferns, with mosses,
Twilight shadows in a pool.
Lilac fragrance drifting eastward,
Royal Iris flecked with dew.
Purple beach leaves rustling gently,
Drowsy world 'neath hazy blue.

A men's glee club has again been formed this year. Although late in starting,
the club has had a successful year. In all there have been nearly forty aspirants for
membership, of whom sixteen were Freshmen. From this group twenty-five or thirty
were selected to represent the Men's Glee Club.

For W. A. A. this has been a year of many innovations and improvements.
W. A. A.'s great stride forward has been its automatic membership which has reached
out to include all the women of the college.
Because of the change from a club to a large organization, many constitutional
amendments have been made. So that these amendments and anything else of
interest concerning the organization might be known to all members, handbooks
have been published.
In the fall Miss Elizabeth Leavens of Boston gave to about thirty interested
members of our organization a more intensive campfire course than the one given
by her the previous year. One thing accomplished by this group, which has given
pleasure to all members of W. A. A., is the stone fireplace constructed in the garden.
This year the conference of the Athletic Association of Massachusetts Teachers
Colleges was held at Bridgewater on November 1 and 2. The central theme of the
conference was "The Modem Dance," which is one of the newer trends in women's
activities today. The conference was climaxed with a performance of a dance group
from New York University and a lecture by John Martin, noted dance critic.

The B. T. C. A. A. sponsored a very successful play day for junior high school
boys in October 1935. The men of the different classes carried out the program.
On February 1, 1936, an informal dance was sponsored by the A. A. in the
gymnasium. We feel that it was one of the pleasantest social events of the season.
As is the custom, the A. A. supported the various athletic activities of the college.
This year the sports program included soccer, basketball, baseball and tennis. The
council hopes that each successive year will be as successful in athletics as this year
has proved to be.

which to practice. Mr. Warren, Superintendent of the State Farm, had, however,
enabled several home games to be scheduled by offering the team the use of his

The 1935 Varsity Soccer Team enjoyed a fairly successful season, winning
fifty per cent of the games played. The objective game of the season, the Fitchburg
game, ended in a tie score. Since this tie broke Fitchburg 's supremacy in soccer
over a span of years, Bridgewater claimed a moral victory.
For the first time in three years, Bridgewater was able to invite colleges to compete
on a Bridgewater soccer field. The Training School playground was used for the home
games, which numbered five.

of the basketball season was the winning of the Harrington Trophy from Fitchburg
Teachers College on the night of February 8. Almost two hundred loyal rooters
accompanied the players to Fitchburg to help the boys to win the Trophy, which
Fitchburg has held for a number of years.
This year the practice of maintaining a Junior Varsity was begun, and it met with
such great success that a more extensive program has been planned for the squad

Haste thee, nymph, and bring with thee
Jest, and youthful Jollity,
Quips and cranks and wanton wiles,
Nods and becks and wreathed smiles,
Such as hang on Hebe's cheek,
And love to live in dimple sleek;
Sport that wrinkled Care derides,
And Laughter holding both his sides."
Forgive me if I speak my woe,
My tale of yesterday.
Just now it seems so long ago
And, oh, so far away.
I knew he never could be mine
Forever or for long.
But still I gave the lover's sign
And sang the lover's song.
I knew I'd be a fool to go
With him, a long short mile,
And yet I went so fast, and slow
And loved him for a while.
And now he's gone and I'm alone
But we're together yet
Though he's not here, he's still my own
Ah, yes, my cheeks are wet.
Forgive me if I spoke my heart,
I'm just a fool you know.
I hoped our love would linger in
Your soul — a thing above
The common cry where women dwell,
Where man, in grief, will tear
The roots from out the sin-soaked earth
His destiny to bear.
I thought perhaps it would not be
A light love song to you,
But rather, more a gift of gods
A sweet, rare, precious wine
Made known to only chosen few
That see it clearly shine.
